SAVING THE ‘LITTLE FIVE’: Conserving the small mammals of Kenya
Did you know that the elephant shrew or golden-rumped sengi are found nowhere else on Earth but in the Arabuko/Gede forests in Malindi County, and that the African maned rat is the only vertebrate known in Kenya to apply plant poison on its coat to protect itself against predators?
Kenya is justifiably known for its ‘Big Five’ game animals that attract visitors from around the world; but it is also home to genetically unique small mammals that are not as visible but are also in need of protection in a difficult environment where they are often stranded in single populations.
Join Bernard Agwanda, Research Scientist & Mammal Curator at the National Museums of Kenya, as he explains the fascinating existence of these small creatures and what we can do to help protect them and their environment.
